Wisconsin Beer Brats

Did you know that today is National Hot Dog Day?  I know, we have a “day” for everything now.  But none the less, in honor of this special day I thought I would make my version of a hotdog. {insert sneaky smirk} :)  Let me introduce you to my hometown favorite … Wisconsin Beer Brats.

Wisconsin is known for its Beer, its Brats, and its Cheese! So on a day like today I had to make these Brats.  They may not fit the bill of being a “healthy” meal but man they sure do fit the bill of being “joyful”.  I know after tasting them you will completely agree!  When making these brats the key is to bring them to a boil and then let them soak in all that Wisconsin Beer goodness. It is divine!

    I dated a guy in college who was from Wisconsin. When ever he went back to visit, or anyone came to California to visit, they would bring an igloo chest FULL of brats! I had no clue what they were. Now every time I see them, I think of him and that ice chest…and the beer!

      haha.. that is hilarious. He must have been deep woods Wisconsin, us normal Wisconsinites aren’t that intense about our brats. Thats so funny!!:)
